Some Elmore Leonard tributes collected

You could say there are two main schools of American prose style: the pulpit and the porch steps. The first is forceful, openly intent on asserting its import, and apt to assume the cadences of a hallowed literary predecessor in…

Justified – “Ghosts” – review

You gotta love the Justified season finale subverting your expectations right after the first commercial break.  Raylan discovers that three of Nick Augustine’s boys have taken Winona hostage and will cut his baby girl right out of her stomach and…

Justified – “Money Trap” – review

More wheel-spinning on Justified this week as both our heroes are sidetracked by shit that ain’t Drew Thompson in the slightest…for now, anyhow.  “Money Trap” finds Raylan having to close up some loose ends on his at-the-time seemingly disposable story…

Justified – “Kin” – review

Whoo-boy did a lot of shit go down in “Kin,” episode five of season four of Justified.  After last week’s leisurely but very fun entry, this week we were thrown a whole helluva lot of info and incident, starting with…

Justified – “Coalition” – review

It’s starting to look like Limehouse won’t be one of season three’s casualties.  Hell, it’s starting to look like Limehouse isn’t such a fearsome character as we first thought, either.  I mean, all this time he’s just been protecting Loretta’s…

Justified – “The Man Behind the Curtain” – review

Alright so now we’re getting into straight-up serialization on the show, Justifans – we’re at a point with episode seven that if you haven’t been following the show this season, you can pretty much eat shit far as the writers…
